in the u.s. senate, senator ted kennedy, died last summer. that was a major blow. dodd then picked up kennedy's mantle on health care legislation, but he's also spear-heading a compromise on landmark banking regulation. that could now falter if dodd loses clout as a lame duck. dodd's decision to retire became known only a few hours after another democratic stalwart, senator byro dorgan said he wouldn't run. he was also challenged at home. and senate majority leader reid didn't know in advance of either decision. he faces a tough election this year. >> how significant is the timing of these announcements and what do you think it will mean psychologically and symbolically for the democrats who face a tough november coming up? >> it's huge. dodd's decision could actually improve democratic chances in their state. there is a popular attorney general,ichard blumenthal there. so they ve a chance of holding that seat. dorgan's seat will probably be taken by north dakota's republicans, maybe the governor if he chooses to run. now also, democratic governor bill ritter believed to be once a ris
it was incredibly partisan. does that tell us more about the speech or the room that it was delivered in? >> oh, i think it's both, but i think, without a doubt, the president had different messages for different groups. he was trying to speak to his own democratic base. he was trying to speak to even moderate democrats, independent voters who are frustrated with government. but he did want to do two things to the right. on one hand, he said look, i want to look for pragmatic ways to work together. i'm not going to try to shove health care down your throat, but i am going to blame you if you stand on the sidelines and require that it takes 60 votes in the senate to get nippianyth. you're going to have to be accountable for what goes on or doesn't get down in washington. he's playing the outsider. >> he says he wants a jobs bill sooner rather than later. how tough a battle, how tough will the fight be over the content of that bill? >> well, i don't think it will have to be that big. the house has passed the bill, they have to work on elements of that. the senate can take it up as well. there seems
used a lot of it to convince the american people he's focused on issue number one, the economy and jobs. >> the president called jobs his number one focus in 2010, and he told lawmakers he wanted a new jobs bill on his desk "without delay." in fact, it took president obama 33 minutes to bring up what was once his administration's biggest priority, and that would be health care. >> just ahead, some reaction to the speech from both sides of the aisle when we talk to vice president joe biden and former florida governor, republican jeb bush. but let's begin at the white house with nbc's chuck todd, our chief white house correspondent. chuck, good morning to you. >> reporter: well, good morning, matt. look, it was a very animated president obama last night who delivered his first state of the union that was as much about trying to shore up his own political standing with the american public as it was about laying out his agenda for the coming year. >> the worst of the storm has passed. >> reporter: the president took pains to talk about hope at a time when so many americans seemed to have so
to praise him but he used what the president calls inartful language. >> that's right. reid's remarks were revealed in a book called "game change" that also delves a lot into the mccain/palin campaign, including claims that john mccain's aides had serious questions about sarah palin's mental stability and that she was not senator mccain's first choice for a running mate. we're going to talk to the senator about it all in just a moment. >>> also, it is bonus season on wall street, but it seems the only people happy about that are the people receiving those bonuses. take a look at some of these numbers. the average payout for a jpmorgan chase employee, $463,000. goldman sachs, $595,000. both banks, you'll remember, were bailed out by taxpayer money. and again, those are the averages. some executives at these companies are going to get millions and millions of dollars. so, what, if anything, can the government do about all this? we're going to have much more on that, coming up. >>> plus, the latest on the late-night shuffling going on here at nbc. jay leno and conan o'brien had a lot to say a
